Puri: The chief administrator of Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) today requested the National Monuments Authority (NMA) to withdraw the draft notification on Heritage Bye-Laws meant for Shree Jagannath Temple.

In his letter to the NMA Member Secretary, SJTA chief administrator Krishan Kumar has implored, “To protect the interest of the Lords, sevaks & devotees at large, I request you to immediately withdraw the draft notification under reference.”

“If National Monuments Authority (NMA) is still of the considered view that any further regulatory framework of any nature is required to protect & further the cause of ‘Mula Peetha’ of Shree Jagannatha at Puri, then you are invited for a detailed consultation & discussion with members of Shree Jagannath Temple Management Committee (SJTMC) before any such fresh attempt is made,” emphasized the SJTA chief administrator.
